Lipoprotein Clinical Study

Elite Clinical Studies is a multi-specialty dedicated lipoprotein clinical study research facility in Phoenix, Arizona.

Current Clinical Studies


Welcome to our informative page on lipoproteins at Elite Clinical Studies. Here, we delve into the essential role that lipoproteins play in maintaining heart health and how our research is contributing to a deeper understanding of cholesterol management. As a premier clinical research facility in Phoenix, Arizona, we’re dedicated to uncovering insights that empower individuals to make informed choices about their cardiovascular well-being.

What are Lipoproteins?

Lipoproteins are complex molecules that combine proteins, fats, and cholesterol. They serve as transport vehicles in the bloodstream, allowing lipids (fats) to move within the body. Lipoproteins are crucial for distributing lipids to various cells and tissues, including those vital for energy production and hormone synthesis.

Types of Lipoproteins:

Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL): Commonly referred to as “bad cholesterol,” LDL transports cholesterol from the liver to cells throughout the body. However, excessive levels of LDL cholesterol can lead to plaque buildup in arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL): Often known as “good cholesterol,” HDL plays a key role in transporting excess cholesterol from the bloodstream back to the liver for disposal. High levels of HDL are associated with a lower risk of heart disease.

Very-Low-Density Lipoprotein (VLDL): VLDL carries triglycerides (a type of fat) from the liver to various tissues. Elevated levels of VLDL are linked to increased cardiovascular risk.

Our Lipoprotein Research:

At Elite Clinical Studies, we are dedicated to advancing the understanding of lipoproteins and their impact on cardiovascular health. Our research aims to:

Identify Risk Factors: We study various factors that contribute to lipoprotein imbalances and how they relate to the development of heart disease.

Evaluate Therapies: Our clinical trials assess new therapies designed to regulate lipoprotein levels, reduce arterial plaque buildup, and ultimately lower the risk of heart-related complications.

Join Our Efforts for Heart Health:

By participating in our lipoprotein-related clinical trials, you become an active participant in the quest for better heart health. Whether you’re at risk for cardiovascular issues or seeking ways to improve your lipid profile, your involvement can lead to breakthroughs in prevention and treatment strategies.

Type I or Type II Diabetes

Type I and Type II diabetes are both chronic metabolic disorders characterized by high blood sugar levels. Type I diabetes, often diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, on the other hand, Type II diabetes, typically diagnosed in adulthood.

Lipoprotein (a)

Lipoprotein (a), often abbreviated as Lp(a), is a type of lipoprotein particle that circulates in the blood. Elevated levels of Lp(a) in the blood have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack and stroke.

Active Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

Active rotator cuff tendinopathy refers to a condition characterized by inflammation and degeneration of the tendons in the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder. It commonly occurs as a result of repetitive overhead activities or age-related wear and tear.

Acid Reflux

Acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a condition characterized by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. This occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscular ring that separates the stomach from the esophagus, weakens or relaxes inappropriately.


Heartburn is a common symptom of acid reflux, characterized by a burning sensation in the chest or throat. It occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, causing irritation and discomfort.

Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and red patches on the skin. It commonly affects individuals with a personal or family history of allergies, asthma, or hay fever.


Migraines are a neurological condition characterized by recurring episodes of severe headaches. They typically cause throbbing or pulsating pain, often on one side of the head, and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances.


Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurrent episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. It is a condition that can range from mild to severe, and its symptoms can vary in frequency and intensity from person to person.

Erosive Esophagitis

Erosive esophagitis is a condition characterized by inflammation and damage to the lining of the esophagus. It is commonly caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, leading to irritation and erosion of the tissue.


COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive lung disease characterized by persistent airflow limitation. It is often caused by long-term exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and occupational hazards.

COPD with Exacerbations

COPD with exacerbations refers to the worsening of symptoms and a sudden increase in the severity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Exacerbations can be triggered by various factors, such as respiratory infections, exposure to irritants, changes in weather, or failure to adhere to treatment plans.


MACE stands for Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events. It is a term used to describe a group of serious cardiovascular events that can have significant health implications. MACE typically includes events such as heart attack, stroke, cardiovascular death, and the need for coronary revascularization procedures like angioplasty or bypass surgery.

Major Depression

Major depression, also known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest or pleasure in activities. It is more than just feeling down or having a “bad day.”


Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a common medical condition characterized by elevated pressure in the arteries. It is often considered a silent or asymptomatic condition, but it can have serious health implications if left untreated.

Obesity w/Type II Diabetes

Obesity and Type II diabetes often go hand in hand and can have a significant impact on an individual’s health. Obesity is defined as having excess body fat, typically resulting from an imbalance between calorie intake and expenditure.

Obesity w/Cardio Vascular Disease

Obesity is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), which refers to a group of conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels. Excess body weight, particularly central obesity (excess fat around the abdomen), contributes to various mechanisms that increase the risk of CVD.

OA of the Knee

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a degenerative joint disease that affects the knee joint. It occurs when the cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the bones, gradually wears away, leading to friction and damage to the joint.


GERD, which stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. It occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscular ring that separates the stomach from the esophagus, becomes weak or relaxes inappropriately.
